Former Akwa Ibom governor, Godswill Akpabion has finally visited the Ibom Specialist Hospital, Uyo, Akwa Ibom state, for medical check-up.
Reports said Senator Akpabio arrived at the hospital at about 12.45pm on Thursday accompanied by his former physician, Iniobong Essien, who is now the commissioner for environment in Akwa Ibom.
Recall that Akpabio, now senate minority leader, travelled to the United Kingdom for medical attention after a car accident, abandoning the multi-billion naira facility
Mr. Akpabio later said the hospital’s take-off was delayed because foreign doctors billed to work there had not been cleared by the Nigerian Immigration Service to travel to the country.
The hospital officially commenced operation in November 2015, six months after it was commissioned.
It was Mr. Akpabio’s first visit to the hospital since he left office.
